The Manitoba Adventures of Mick E. Moose

by Mick E. @MickEMoose_00 / WinnipegJets.com

Hello Jets and Moose fans! I'm back from my post-season respite and it's great to be back in Winnipeg for the summer!

The rest and recuperation of seeing family and friends in Sandilands Provincial Park is always nice after a long hockey season. Getting some of mom's home cooking, especially her famous mixed berry salad with my favourite blueberries, is a real treat!

Since I've been back living the big city life, things have been busy. Even without two hockey teams to cheer on, my summer schedule stays jam-packed!
